Photographer's Note

The Casa Rosada (Pink House) is the Argentina's government headquarters and was declared National Historic Museum in 1942. With the Plaza de Mayo, it build one of the most beautiful Argentina's postcards. Before it be the "House of Government", was located the Buenos Aires' fort in colonial era.

The building of the present seat of Argentina's presidency was started in 1873 when it was built the Post office and Telegraph building. There are two versions for the color of the palace. At the time, it was common mix lime and animal blood to paint, resulting in pink. The other tell that is a peace symbol, because it unites the colors of the two local factions of the civil war: "unitary" (white) and "federal" (red).
